No excuses

I could use the following excuses.
  • I was 7 days off a marathon.
  • I had not seen a hill like that in 5 years.
  • I had not run a distance a short as a mile in over 25 years.
  • I raced alone.
  • I did not know the course.
  • May I woulda beat my kids if I was actually running along side of them
  • Whatever
Last week I participated in a 4 x 1 mile cross country rely.  I was the 3rd leg and my son and daughter were on other legs of different teams.  

My son's time was 3 seconds faster than mine and my daughter's was almost a minute faster.  I ran as fast as I could that day, it was not just not enough.

A major turning point in my live as pasted.

I'm OK, I guess.


  1. My youngest brother is 21 years younger than I am. When he was 13, I could outrun him in a sprint. A year later, he had grown and I had grown older, and I couldn't out run him at any distance.
    Seems to happen that way. Dunno why. I mean, it hardly seems fair, does it? LOL

  2. I think that's pretty cool! Run, little Ringlets, Run!




You do not have to be nice!
